Q: How do I copyright the songs I've created in GarageBand?
[Related Entries : Commercial Release ]

A: Since 1977 the moment you write, record, draw (etc) something, it is copyrighted.

To be able to prove it, and to receive damages should someone infringe upon your copyright, you need to file your copyright with the Library Of Congress. All that entails is sending the recording along with the correct copyright form (available from the LOC web site) and fee which is currently $30 $45 $35 for an electronic filing and $65 for a paper filing as of December 2013.

If you intend to publish the work you can send 2 copies to the LOC to take care of the "Mandatory deposit" of your work

More information as well as the forms are available from the Library of Congress web site, specifically at the Copyright domain..
